We came back again :) my labrador loved this place so much!

My first time taking my son here, much nicer than the first time I went by myself over a year ago! Great trails even after rain, well maintained, nice rose garden on the east side trail. New bridges. Only down side is you can often still hear the traffic.

No frills trail sandwiched between public areas. Looks like it would interesting with a mountain bike but dangerous. Trail could use some maintenance.

Good family trail, can be packed with 5k runners.

You can't go wrong here. Plenty of room around a beautiful lake with a great surface for walking. If you like to walk 3 miles, it's twice around. Well marked at every quarter mile.

We were back again for the weekend from NC, very popular trail, recommend to go pretty early when less crowded and more parking spots. My lab enjoyed the walked :)

Very easy trail around a lake. Plenty of ppl, dogs, and even stroller traffic. The path is wide and allows for you to get around people if needed.

I took my chocolate lab to the trail and we loved it so much, easy walk, decent distance. Even some parts of the trail close to the expressway, but I didn’t find it bothersome. I plan to take my lab back again everyday until it’s time to go home

Nice walking/running path. The occasional unleashed privileged dogs.
Lots of shade.

My fav for running! Beautiful park!

I only stayed for a 20 min walk but can't wait to go back.

Short, easy, wide, packed trail. Rather busy for an early Sunday morning but everyone was very friendly!

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

I walked in today and did Otter Point Trail and then Molly Mitchell. I had Otter Creek all to myself and didn't even see another Person. I definitely wouldn't do any hiking in this park after a rain as a lot of it is low lying. It was easy and well maintained. Lots of places to stop and take in nature of to grab a rest.

Trails are great. To bad we went after a week of rain so most of them were washed out. Would definitely go back and try again on a more dry week. Lots for the family to see. My little girl loved it and had a blast.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

Muddy in January. But bug-free! Great exercise on a nice winter day. Many informative bulletin boards re: animals, birds, and trees on several bridges. Trail well marked. Portapotties open near campstore and kayak launch.

1 bridge is missing, 2 bridges are out of use because they are falling apart so you have to back track a lot.

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.

Well kept, short trail. Not much elevation change, probably would be very boring for experienced mountain bikers. Nice views of the lake. Two offshoot trails that were less well kept, but offered slightly more in the way of trail biking than the main trail. Overall, probably more of a walking trail but a nice experience.

Nice little simple walk

Thoroughly enjoyed this; flat, shaded and interesting.

Nice time with fam. Lots of bugs for kids to see. Of course, squirrels! The walk is calm and the office had a good map.

Beautiful! Nice family oriented place. Very diverse and open atmosphere.

Don't come without bug spray. It's nice and green, which is good, but so much time was spent staring at the ground to avoid tripping on roots or finding a spot to walk around mud. That said - this hike would've been much more pleasurable with the bug spray, at a lower temperature (93 and humid today), and with boots better for mud. I was wearing Merrel hiking shoes.

Had a great run here. A little busy but it was a nice day. Lots of gnats that I caught in my mouth. Overall a beautiful trail and a great run!
